Because closing the beaches isn’t ever going to be enough protection for birds that nest on the ground. Trucks, as far as I know, aren’t the problem, it’s predation by other animals.

Tim when the data from some of the studies done in another time were revealed with out question is from the four legged animals on the ground that came out at night for an easy feed and other flying vultures . This was not seen by the managers as well as seeing a dead bird in the track they could find a reason to close the beach. Both the Race and Nauset have another trail behind the dunes to travel to get around the nesting grounds and when approached on this many years ago, they employed them for a short time. It was just easier to do a complete closer. Less work and aggravation by the Audubon folks

I wonder if the NPS could be pressured to open the back trails again. There are a few different exit points from the back trail to the beach at Race Point.  It seems like you could probably access some bird free beach somewhere.  The dune tours use the back trails. Why can’t everyone else?

Most of the beach closures during non plover time is from erosion.  The storms have taken their tolls on the fronts and at high tide it's not passable. And common sense is not to common these days.
